“The Crafter is going from strength to strength, with a growing customer base and reputation for great quality, driveability and usability. This is backed up by awards such as the ones received this month from prestigious titles such as Parkers and Commercial Fleet." - Carl zu Dohna, Director of Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles
Fleet directors and Commercial Fleet’s journalists awarded the Volkswagen Crafter 'Large LCV of the Year' after considering its price, reliability, standard specification, driving dynamics and choice of variants available. And thanks to the Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles nationwide network of almost 100 Van Centres and Authorised Repairers, you’ll also find us working with you to offer fleet and business support for our award-winning vans.
“The Crafter has always impressed us with its ease of operation: it’s incredibly good to drive for such a large vehicle, offers great real-world efficiency and has large load volumes, with a cab environment that’s second to none.”
Good things come in threes. Like awards. And vans. Take the Crafter - it’s so good that Parkers Vans made it Best Large Van for three years in a row and voted it Van of the Year 2020. Parkers recognised the quality engineering that makes the Crafter reliable and efficient, as well as comfy touches in the cab to make every shift easier. Three years of happy customers and hard-working vans. Now there’s a hat-trick worth celebrating.
At the Inaugural What Car?
Van Awards, Crafter was commended for its functionality, comfort and intelligent design winning both Best Overall Large Van and Best Large Van to Drive.
Praised its electromechanical steering, agile drive and customisable design, the VolkswagenCrafter was named ‘the complete van’.

The Crafter's innovative and intelligent driver assistance systems help to keep you and your cargo safe.
From congested city multi-drop work to long-distance deliveries, our technology helps to reduce stress and increase safety on the road.
The Crafter comes with state-of-the-art driver assistance systems. Available as standard, Front Assist uses a radar to monitor your distance from the traffic in front and alerts you if you are too close. City Emergency Braking reduces the chance of a collision by triggering emergency braking when it detects critical distances.
Available as an option, Lane Keep Assist countersteers the vehicle if the driver unintentionally drifts from a lane. The system also emits audible and visual warnings via the multi-function display to alert the driver of danger.
Driver, front passenger and side/head airbags give the best possible protection in the event of head-on and side impacts. The front passenger airbag can be deactivated using the vehicle.
If seatbelts aren't fastened, the seatbelt warning reminds the driver and the front passenger to fasten their belts with a visual warning when the engine is started, and an audible warning after setting off.
Fitted as standard, Electromechanical Servotronic steering provides a speed-sensitive operation with active return. This improves the steering sensation around the mid-point, providing a level of steering precision previously nonexistent in commercial vehicles.
Electronic Stabilisation Programme (ESP)
Prevents under- or over-steering via targeted braking of individual wheels.
Anti-lock braking system (ABS)
Prevent the wheels from locking-up while maintaining manoeuvrability.
Traction control system (TCS)
